Can anyone tell me how to avoid all these spaces left in my post? I can't seem to get rid of the dang things. I tried "help" but could not find what I want. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
I know I said that I would have pictures to post over a week ago and I have not come through with them yet. Well, the projects are done and I have taken the pics and now if I can get them to upload they are here.
I told you about the skirt and bag that I made for "adopted" son's wedding. Well, when I made the bag it was such fun and so easy that I decided to make bags for my girls as well. My DD has a thing for turtles so when I found this print with turtles I knew I just had to make something for her and a bag it is.
It is really cute. I don't know if you can see the beads around it or not, but they are there. I guess if you enlarge the picture you can see them. I showed it to DD this afternoon and she went, "Ahhhhhhhhh." So I guess she likes it.
My DDIL is very into camoflage, so when I found the dessert cammo I decided that would be her bag. I got it all cut out last week and was ready to sew but life got in the way and I did not get around to sewing it until Saturday. (I was out here in my shop doing some embroidery work so I sewed the bag between shirts.) I haven't shown it to her yet so I don't know if she will like it or not. If not, oh well. LOL. Her bead are black. I bought some brownish ones but they really clashed with the cammo colors so I had to go shopping again and find something else. I know that beads and cammo don't really go together but I wanted to add a little bit of a feminine touch to it. DDIL can just live with it, hehe.
And last but certainly not least is my first bag, the one I made for myself. I really love it. I am thinking of taking the flap off and just putting a snap on it. The flap just does not lay correctly. It wants to roll up and I don't like that. I do love the beads that I found for this one. I think they would make great stitch markers. What do you think?
Now that I have started sewing again I want to do some more. I don't have anything cut out but I do have fabric for 3 more skirts. I guess I just need to cut them out.
Yesterday we took my dear MIL and her sister and BIL to cut walking sticks. Uncle D makes them and sells them and dear MIL just makes them. We had a wonderful afternoon. It was not too hot and the walk up the mountainette was not too steep. They both got some nice sticks and were happy with them.
I am going to post this before I lose it again.
Everyone have a great evening.
